Regarding the change of Austin from white to black...

I personally think it was a racist move as I think that including a black character just to include a black character is racist, but looking back, I can't imagine Austin not looking strange with white skin.

Well, it's made in Japan. Again, not to be racist, but I think it isn't really a big deal if the game doesn't have a black person in it in Japan. I'm not saying that everything about Japan has to do with Anime and Manga, but do you know how much Anime and Manga don't have any black people in them!?

No I didn't say it was racist when he wasn't black, I said it was racist when he became black because it meant that the developers decided they should include a black person just so they'd have a black person.

They did it so other people wouldn't think they were racist because if they didn't someone was bound to say "How come there's no black people in the game" and be called racist anyway.
